Y’all should wait till subsequent week to see the mural wall cupboards as a result of I obtained all of them painted and clear coated, however I didn’t wish to danger placing the doorways and drawer fronts on too quickly. I’d reasonably give the clear coat a few days to dry earlier than messing with them. And I do know a few of you’ve a number of questions concerning the portray course of, merchandise used, and so on. I’ll share all of that subsequent week.
Within the meantime, I can’t cease eager about these cupboards simply contained in the door from the breakfast room. As I’ve already shared, I hesitate to color them pink and deal with them identical to the opposite two sections of cupboards within the room.
When you’re new round right here, and haven’t had the prospect to get caught up on my studio venture, these are the 2 areas of cupboards I’m speaking about that might be pink. First, there’s the mural wall that may have 20-feet of decrease cupboards painted pink.
And right here’s the a peek on the pink.
The second space of cupboards that would be the identical pink is that this nook that I name the workplace space of the studio.
I like the thought of these two areas of cupboards matching in shade and magnificence. However with regards to this third space of cupboards simply contained in the studio door, I simply can’t fairly get on board with these matching in shade and magnificence. I believe it could be overkill.
Clearly, I’m nonetheless engaged on placing that part collectively. 🙂 My authentic plan had been to make them look identical to the remaining. You’ll be able to see that I put the identical functional-but-not-pretty ft on these that I made for the opposite sections as a result of I deliberate to make this part look built-in identical to the others, which means that these utilitarian ft can be coated with baseboard-type trim.
However now I’m pondering that as an alternative of constructing them look built-in, I ought to make them appear like a totally separate piece of furnishings, identical to I did with the cupboard within the water closet space of our lavatory.
When you adopted the grasp lavatory venture, you would possibly keep in mind that I had initially deliberate so as to add built-in cupboards to that space, however I ended up making this cupboard as a separate piece of furnishings as an alternative. And I’m so glad I did! I believe having this cupboard as a separate piece of furnishings as an alternative of built-in cupboards seems to be a lot extra fascinating.
So I believe that’s the course I’ll head with this part of cupboards within the studio. I’ll have to start out by eradicating the utilitarian ft and including some fairly furnishings ft.
After which I would like to maneuver it away from the aspect wall and middle it on the wall like I might any piece of furnishings that I put there.
These are the simple selections. The tougher resolution is what on the earth I’m going to do with the remainder of it. 😀 I’ve spent a while on Pinterest looking for concepts that I believe would coordinate with my pink cupboards with gold accents, and would additionally look good from the primary areas of the home since it will likely be seen when the studio door is open. Listed below are a couple of that caught my eye.
I like the look of the doorways (not the legs, simply the doorways) on this Ehren Rattan Sideboard from All Modern (affiliate hyperlink).
I like that the rattan has white behind it to maintain it mild, and the colour of the rattan seems to be so good with the gold accents. It wants door pulls, although.
Subsequent up is that this Scale Pattern Sideboard (affiliate hyperlink) from Homary.
I like the design on the doorways, however I do not know what shade would work. I virtually suppose it must be varied shades of white with the gold scale design over it. And since my cupboard might be a lot bigger than this one, I might most likely solely use the design inside a framed space of every door reasonably than doing it on all the door. In any case, I’ll have 12 full overlay doorways on my cupboard.
This subsequent one is the right instance of with the ability to discover inspiration even in issues I don’t essentially like. 😀 I don’t actually just like the look of this geometric credenza from Society 6 (affiliate hyperlink), however I do like the thought of doing a geometrical shade block design and including in some metallic gold.
However I might use a lot softer colours to coordinate with the room. This black, white and gold design appears very harsh for my style. So that you’ll simply must think about a shade block design executed with smooth, fairly colours pulled from the floral mural. Really, there are a ton of painted designs I got here throughout that will work. All the things from stripes to small geometric designs, and nearly every thing in between. On the subject of painted designs, the choices are limitless.
One other concept is to do a textural design just like this small accent cabinet from Hulala Home.
And I already understand how I might recreate that look. It might be a really enjoyable venture! Nevertheless it may additionally get fairly costly.
And eventually, I might do a easy metallic design like this geometric gold pattern credenza from Society 6 (affiliate hyperlink).
I don’t notably like that particular design. It seems to be too busy to me. And if I did one thing like this, it could be gold on white, so it could have a softer and extra refined look. However I do like the thought of a easy metallic design.
So at this level, I do not know which course I’ll go. In fact, something with paint and a little bit trim would probably the most economical. Something that entails plenty of trim to create a design on the doorways could possibly be fairly costly with such a big cupboard and 12 doorways. However I wish to do one thing fairly, one thing fascinating, and one thing that may coordinate with the studio and the primary areas of the home.
